Elton is a cameo role in the documentary about Tour partner Billy Joel on NBC channel in the USA in a programme called Dateline NBC on May 20, 2003, at 2200 ET.

In an exclusive prime-time interview, Katie Couric sits down with "piano man," Billy to talk about Movin' Out, the hit Broadway show based on his music, which recently earned ten Tony Award Nominations. She also asks Billy about his love-life, his legendary career and recent reports about his drinking.

Couric sat down with Billy, choreographer and director Twyla Tharp, and cast members as he shared his reaction to the "ludicrous" idea of a musical based on his music.

Billy also talked about the recent reports of his alcohol abuse, his recent car crash, and his decision to visit a rehab facility.

Couric also takes viewers backstage with Billy at a recent Face to Face concert with Elton.
